Every Entrepreneur Needs To Take A Break To Recharge

Yes, Even You!

Everyone Needs To Recharge Their Batteries

  • Make a plan ahead of time and communicate it with your team.
  • Use this time to focus on yourself, your family, and recharge.
  • Disconnect from electronics and take this time to brainstorm and reflect so you can come back with fresh ideas and innovations.
  • Reflect On Being A Effective Leader

There is nothing more difficult than taking a break from your business. There is always another goal to meet, another sale to make, another partnership to build. It can feel like you’re missing out on potential opportunities if you unplug from your business. But, all business leaders need to take time to rest and recharge — for their own health and for the health of their companies.

Why Every Business Owner Needs A Holiday Break Cover

 An Academy of Management Study found that running a business causes twice as much stress as maintaining a healthy relationship with a spouse or partner, nearly three times as much pressure as raising children, and more than four times as much stress as managing their finances.

Being your best self means taking time to recharge. Make a plan for the office and prepare to really enjoy your vacation.

Make a Plan Ahead Of Time

Plan your vacation ahead and let your team know. The same way you plan a 13-Week Cash Forecast or a quarterly budget, remember to prepare for workloads, commitments, and team responsibilities.

Creating an Out-of-Office plan or coverage plan will communicate your team’s expectations while the boss is away. Don’t tag your team members on the way to the airport.

Set aside some time to chat with everyone who will be covering for you. Make sure they are comfortable with everything and understand the responsibilities they will be taking on while you are on holiday.

Use This Time To Recharge

Why Every Business Owner Needs A Break Break

As an entrepreneur, you’re expected to do it all: get new clients, keep current clients happy, manage employees, keep informed of industry changes, and more.

It’s no wonder that you can feel burned out, which can affect your health and your company’s health. That’s why you have to make time to rejuvenate yourself and your organization.

A break like this will allow you to take a step back and gather all of your thoughts. When you are putting in 16-hour workdays every day, this is crucial.

Don’t Work During Your Break

Unless there is a code red level of emergency, don’t work!

Vacation time should as restorative and work-free as possible. Your team knows the out of office procedures.

You are an entrepreneur. We know you will be checking your email and Slack notifications anyway; however, do plan to completely disconnect if possible and provide an alternative way for your colleagues to reach you in case of an emergency.

Take this time to unplug from technology. 2020 more than ever, has made working from home the new normal and has forced us always to be connected to our laptops, tablets, and phones; it’s essential to put away technology and realign ourselves.

Take this time to brainstorm, imagine, and reflect on the vision of your company. You will return to the office refreshed and chock-full of new ideas and innovations. Find a way to remove yourself from the screen and just be.

Reflect On Being A Leader

You are what you do, and when you’re not doing it, you’re not that thing! Take this vacation time to reflect on all that you have done as the leader of your team and what you can do when you return.

We are our own worst critics. Entrepreneurs can sometimes put so much stress on themselves that it can begin to affect their health and their company’s health.

Time away from work will make you a better leader and set an important precedent for your team — showing your team members that you trust them to continue thriving and prospering without you and demonstrating that you value taking time to think, relax and recharge.
